    Default Audio from flight 1549 into the Hudson

    I decided to put this in the tactics section because remaining calm under pressure and communicating in clear, concise messages is much more of a firefighting tactic than talking about the kind of glove or helmet you are going to use which seems to be so popular in this topic.

    Capt. Sully did an outstanding job and his positive example can certainly be applied to the fire service.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.

    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

    It certainly shows what happens when people are taught and experienced in using a radio.
    People always ask me why I unkey the mike after several sentences,it's because during any situation,somebody might could have a higher priority,even when I'm out on a towboat talking the pilot into a dock.
    Example,if I were reporting nothing showing on the B/C side of a residential structure,and the guy checking C/D has fire with people hanging out a second story window at the C/D corner,then I don't need to tie up the radio asking what is needed next.
    I'd need to keep quiet and let the IC figure out who he needs to send over to help and what they'll need.
